Bankhead Highway SignThe Bankhead Highway was America's first all-weather transcontinental highway joining Washington D.C. to San Diego. It also just happens to run right through the middle of Garland. 2016 is the 100th anniversary of John Hollis Bankhead’s Federal Aid Highway Act of 1916. To celebrate this event that changed the way American's lived, the City of Garland will spend the year promoting the history of the Bankhead Highway.

The Bankhead Highway travels through Garland starting on the old bridges in Lake Ray Hubbard that were exposed during the recent drought, running through Downtown Garland on Main Street, and heading out of town via Miller and Jupiter Roads.
